It snowed, and plenty more besides. Kylian Mbappé and Marquinhos put Paris two up inside the opening half-hour, but the holders were level on the hour thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski stand-in Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Müller. Mbappé had the final say, though, finishing superbly for his second and his team's third.

Expert predictions

Chris Burke, Paris reporter: Here we are again, Paris having won a first leg with such exhilarating attacking verve that it's difficult to imagine them losing control. Except for those infamous occasions when they did – think Barcelona (2017) and Manchester United (2019). But having just survived a nervy return game against Barça, and with Bayern in weakened shape, they are surely not done with this competition yet.

Jordan Maciel, Bayern reporter: Bayern were bullish about their chances of turning this tie around in the wake of last week's 3-2 defeat, but travel to Paris with several notable absentees. There's no doubting the holders have the quality to get the result they need – as they showed in a largely dominant display in Munich – but it will take more clinical finishing and a faultless defensive performance.

View from the camps

Mauricio Pochettino, Paris coach: "For me, anything can happen. Bayern are the best team in the world at the moment. I have enormous respect for them, but at the same time, we have confidence in our strengths, and we know that we have to think about winning this match."

Hansi Flick, Bayern coach: "We know we have to score at least two goals. It will be a tough task, but these are the games we play football for. We want to cause a mini upset in Paris. Of course, we'll be delighted if we manage that."
